Islanders top Thunder

Back-to-back losses for Langley junior A lacrosse squad

The Langley Junior Thunder fell 8-6 to the visiting Delta Islanders, the first two-game losing streak for the junior A lacrosse club.

The Thunder hosted Delta at the Langley Events Centre on June 6.

Langley held a short-lived 2-1 lead in the first period, but for the rest of the game were playing catch-up.

The teams were tied at 2 after one period — despite a 19-5 advantage in shots for the Thunder — and the Islanders led 5-4 after 40 minutes.

Delta sealed the win with goals 26 seconds apart late in the third.

Brett Dobray led Langley with two goals and five points while James Rahe had a hat trick.

Nathan Henare had the other Thunder goal.

The loss dropped Langley to 6-4 and into fifth place in the B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League standings.

Delta improved to 8-5 and holds down first place with 16 points.

The Thunder will try to get back on track when they host Nanaimo on June 9 at 5 p.m. at the Langley Events Centre.
